22:30 Manchester United vs Tottenham – Old Trafford
Manchester United ($2.3)
Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways as they welcome in-form Tottenham to Old Trafford as second meets third in the pursuit of Manchester City. Tottenham’s 4-1 dismantling of Liverpool on Sunday could be a huge result in the context of their Premier League season and if they can start firing at Wembley, they are a force to be reckoned with this season. Jose Mourinho questioned his team’s desire following their 2-1 defeat at the hands of Huddersfield last time out as United suffered their first loss of the campaign. The Red Devils are yet to concede a Premier League goal at Old Trafford this season and will be eager to return to winning ways. Spurs have won all of their away games this term – picking up good results at Everton, Leicester, Newcastle, West Ham and Huddersfield.
Although both sides come into this one on the back of very different results, it should be a very even game between two excellent sides.
Betting tip: Both teams to score and the match to finish as a draw ($4.50) BET NOW
01:00 Arsenal vs Swansea City – Emirates Stadium
Swansea City ($15)
Arsene Wenger will be hoping his Arsenal side can continue their resurgence in form as they welcome Paul Clement’s struggling Swansea to the Emirates. Arsenal’s 5-2 demolition of Everton ultimately cost Ronald Koeman his job and the verve with which Arsenal played, will give their fans real cause for optimism this season. Swansea came short up against a resurgent Leicester City side last time out and will need to be at their best here to keep the Gunners at bay. Questions were raised about Arsenal’s mental strength following their defeat to Watford earlier in the month but they silenced their critics with a much needed 5-2 win at Everton last Sunday. Swansea sit outside the relegation zone on goal difference alone and need to start picking up points quickly, whilst their goal tally of 6 in 9 league games is the second lowest in the Premier League.
Arsenal look to be finding form and should notch a comprehensive win over Swansea at home.
Betting tip: Arsenal to win the match with a -2.5 Asian Handicap ($2.55) BET NOW
Arsenal to win 3-0
01:00 Crystal Palace vs West Ham United – Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace ($2.4)
West Ham United ($3.4)
Two struggling sides meet at Selhurst Park in a hugely important game for both managers. West Ham arrive in Croydon having suffered an embarrassing 3-0 loss at home to Brighton but Slavan Bilic’s men pulled off a remarkable 3-2 comeback against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup to instil some confidence into the team. Palace have suffered two straight defeats since beating Chelsea – a 1-0 loss at Newcastle preceded a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Championship side Bristol City.
Both teams are a little low on confidence in what promises to be a cagey encounter.
Betting tip: Under 2.5 goals in the game ($1.83) BET NOW
01:00 Liverpool vs Huddersfield – Anfield
The apprentice travels to the home of his master on Saturday as David Wagner takes his Huddersfield side to Anfield to take on his former boss Jurgen Klopp. Wagner oversaw the club’s finest hour in recent times on Saturday as they defeated Manchester United and how he’d dearly love to make it two wins from two here. Liverpool suffered a torrid day at Wembley last time out – losing 4-1 to a Harry Kane inspired Tottenham to leave the reds 12 points off the pace in the Premier League title race.
The Terriers will arrive full of confidence but Liverpool should have too much quality for them.
Betting tip: Liverpool to win with a -2.75 Asian Handicap ($3.26) BET NOW
Liverpool to win 3-0
01:00 Watford vs Stoke City – Vicarage Road
Stoke City ($3.75)
Watford continue to impress this season and were desperately unlucky to leave Stamford Bridge with nothing last weekend after an impressive display against the champions, Chelsea. Stoke travel to London fresh off the back of a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Bournemouth and Mark Hughes’s men have conceded the most goals in the league this season – with a staggering 20 being shipped by the Potters in 9 league games.
Stoke only sit outside of the bottom 3 on goal difference at Watford under Marco Silva look a real force to be reckoned with.
Betting tip: Watford to win the match and both teams to score ($4.33) BET NOW
Watford to win 2-1
01:00 West Bromwich Albion vs Manchester City – The Hawthorns
West Brom ($13)
Manchester City ($1.3)
Manchester City travel to the West Midlands with a 5 point lead at the top of the Premier League and they will be eager to extend the gap between themselves and the chasing pack. With fellow title rivals Manchester United and Tottenham facing off on Saturday morning, City will be eager to press home their advantage against a notoriously resolute West Bromwich Albion side. Tony Pulis’s side are always responsible defensively and look to be physical in an attempt to stop City playing their free-flowing attacking football. But with the predominance of their team being rested in midweek, City should hit the ground running here and provided they can score early and silence the home fans – it should be a comfortable afternoon for Pep Guardiola’s charges.
Betting tip: Sergio Aguero to score anytime and Manchester City to win the match – as a double ($2.06) BET NOW
Manchester City to win 2-0
03:30 Bournemouth vs Chelsea – Vitality Stadium
Eddie Howe spoke of his delight after seeing his team pick up back to back victories – first of all the Bet 365 stadium in a hard-earned 2-1 win over Stoke which was backed up by a 3-1 Carabao Cup win over Middlesbrough at the Vitality Stadium. Chelsea also progressed to the last 8 of the cup and Antonio Conte’s men stopped the rot last time out in the Premier League – beating high flying Watford 4-2 – with Michy Batshuayi bagging a brace.
Bournemouth will pose lots of problems for the Blues, but Conte’s men seem to have their confidence back.
Betting tip: Chelsea to win the match and both teams to score – as a double ($3.2) BET NOW
Chelsea to win 3-1
00:30 Brighton vs Southampton – AMEX Stadium
Chris Hughton’s in-form Brighton welcome south coast rivals Southampton to the Amex Stadium looking to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 3 games. The Seagulls picked up a famous 3-0 win at West Ham United on Friday evening and look to be adapting to Premier League life with ease. The Saints were bailed out by Sofiane Boufal’s brilliance against West Bromwich Albion last time out to give them their first league win for over a month. Chris Hughton has built his team on defensive stability and his charges have only conceded 10 goals in the Premier League tenure so far whilst Mauricio Pellegrino’s men have scored 8 goals from their 9 games this term – a record he will want his team to undoubtedly improve upon.
Both teams come into this game off the back of good results and will fancy their chances against their rivals.
Betting tip: Match to finish as a draw and under 2.5 goals in the game ($5.02) BET NOW
03:00 Leicester City vs Everton – King Power Stadium
Leicester City ($2.1)
Two manager-less teams meet at the King Power Stadium on Sunday afternoon with both sides looking to turn their fortunes around quickly. Leicester dispatched of Craig Shakespeare and interim boss Michael Appleton has overseen back to back wins over Swansea and Leeds in the Carabao Cup. Ronald Koeman was shown the door at Goodison Park following a 5-2 thumping from Arsenal and David Unsworth will be hoping he can replicate Appleton’s good work in caretaker charge. The Foxes look to have found form following the departure of Craig Shakespeare, winning both games since his sacking. They are currently 14th in the Premier League table after 9 games and have endured a rough fixture list – so will be hoping results can improve sooner rather than later. Ronald Koeman ultimately paid the price for Everton’s poor run of form that has left the Toffees in the relegation places in the Premier League table. Sunday’s 5-2 defeat at home to Arsenal was a chastening experience for the Everton faithful as they have now conceded 18 goals this term – third worst record in the league.
Both teams have plenty to prove heading into this game and it promises to be a fascinating battle.
Betting tip: Match to end as a draw and both teams to score – ($4.75) BET NOW
07:00 Burnley vs Newcastle United – Turf Moor
Newcastle United ($2.7)
Sean Dyche’s in-form Burnley will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing defeat at Manchester City as they welcome Rafa Benitez’s resilient Newcastle to Turf Moor. Both sides have exceeded expectations this season and with Burnley sat in 8th position and the Toon one place above them in 7th. The Clarets have had their best ever start to a Premier League season and have picked up 13 points from 9 games. Their defeat to Manchester City was only their second in the league this season and Sean Dyche’s men have beaten the likes of Everton and Chelsea already this term. The Toon have adapted to life in the Premier League with ease this season – and have acquired 14 points from their 9 fixtures played. They are unbeaten in 6 of their last 7 league games and have only conceded 8 goals so far in this campaign.
Both teams have been defensively strong this season which could lead to a close match.
Betting tip: Both teams to score and under 3.5 goals in the game – as a double ($2.42) BET NOW
